And it has a great sponsor!
This is the Press Release, shared by Jason Francis, earlier today:
We are delighted to announce Assetereum, the asset backed cryptocurrency, as the main sponsor for the snooker 2018 World Seniors Masters which will be held at The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield between the 11th and 12th April 2018.
Assetereum was the title sponsor for the recent WPBSA World Seniors Championships in Scunthorpe, won by Aaron Canavan from Jersey. The event saw many local people talking to the Assetereum team about how to get involved in a cryptocurrency.
Andy Papaiacovou, CEO, said,
“It was clear that many people were interested in our cryptocurrency, but wanted to be able to ask questions and meet us in person; it was great to do that as well as sponsoring a sport I love. It proved to be a really good week for our business with many local people investing with us in our asset backed crypto. To continue our association with the World Seniors Tour, in the home of snooker, was a very easy decision.”
Jason Francis, creator of the World Seniors Snooker Tour said, “It’s brilliant to have Assetereum on board again. Feedback from those attending said it was great to have our sponsor on site and learn about what is a hot topic in the world right now – cryptocurrency. Their commitment to our tour is fabulous and we are so grateful.”
As well as being the title sponsor, they are awarding 10,000 Assetereum cryptocurrency tokens to the winner and 5,000 to the runner up. They will also multiply the highest break made at the championships by 30 and convert that into Assetereum tokens.
The winner of the Asseterum World Senior Masters title gets £7,500 and will be the first recipient of the John Spencer Trophy.
